Another inspired creation of Bill Finger and Bob Kane, is the horrific haybale - the Scarecrow. IAppearing briefly in the Golden Age, he has endured to the present day, instilling his own brand of fear in all who cross his path. According to Wikipedia:
m
"First appearing in World's Finest Comics #3 (Fall 1941), the Scarecrow is Dr. Jonathan Crane, a professor of psychology and expert in the psychology of fear, who turns to crime after being fired due to his eccentric behavior and appearance. His modus operandi is the adoption of a Scarecrow persona, used to threaten his victims into doing whatever he wants."

Detective Comics #73 (1948)
Scarecrow's 2nd Appearance
m

"Although he made only two appearances in the Golden Age of Comic Books, the character was eventually revived during the Silver Age of Comic Books by writer Gardner Fox and artist Sheldon Moldoff in the pages of Batman #189 (Feb 1967) and has since become a staple Batman villain."
m
"The Scarecrow uses a variety of toxins that cause his victims to hallucinate that their phobias have come to life. He wears his Scarecrow mask to enhance the effect of the hallucinogen (instilling fear in all who see him) as well as to avoid being poisoned by his own toxin. Although physically unintimidating, Scarecrow can resort to physical combat, using a style called "violent dancing", based partly on the crane style of kung fu and on drunken boxing."

This model is a repaint combining elements from some of my other models and new props and art. It was put together by John-Paul Cote. He came out quite nicely and I'm glad to add this model to the other offerings here. I hope you enjoy assembling this fearsome foe!

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.
